10 Winter Preschool Activities

 

I wish I had the time and imagination to come up with fun and creative activities to do with G throughout the week, but I don’t. I do aimlessly scroll through Pinterest a lot though. Here are 10 of the activities I’m going to try this month.

I came across some fun snowflake paper plates at my local Target and was struck with the idea of how to turn them into this gorgeous paper plate snowflake yarn art. Not only is this a perfect activity for the winter months but it’s great for beginning sewing and fine motor skills.

G loves playing in the snow but he hates being cold. Now we can have a snow day inside!

This super easy play snow is a great indoor activity for those blustery winter days when it is just too cold to play outside, but your children have begun to get a lot little stir crazy, which simultaneously tends to make mommy a lot little crazy. It is so much fun, and is a great activity to provide much needed sensory play for active

little hands and minds.

Snowflake Balance Game

If there’s one craft supply that I like to hoard the most, it’s quite possibly seasonal foam shapes. I have bunnies, hearts, Christmas ones, snowflakes, snowmen, and so many more. They’re so versatile, which is why I like to keep a healthy supply of them around my house! Ha! For instance, we like to play this snowflake gross motor balance activity as a quick way to burn off energy and work on different skills. It’s simple and my kids love it!

Winter STEM- Build A Snowflake Tinker Tray

build-a-snowflake-tinker-tray-9

Provide a surface for your children to use as they build.  We used a round mirror, along with construction paper in different colors.  I made a demonstration snowflake and pointed out how I started with a six-point starburst in the middle.  I showed them how to add the same element to all six sides of the snowflake.  Once they girls saw an example, they were ready to go!
